"Alma Gitana" a gypsy soul
Crossmen 40th DCI Summer Tour- Day 3
Rehearsal Day- Kermit JH, Kermit, TX
We arrived as scheduled last night. The trek through West Texas is familiar. We usually have a show in the Midland Odessa area each summer after the Denton show. The quaint town of Kermit brings a welcome isolation that allows us to focus on the task at hand: "Making this drum corps better with every rep." We have done a great job packing and being ready early for all of our departures so far. That is really a positive. The sooner we get down the road, the faster the rest & fuel stops, the faster we get everyone down and sleeping flat. Floor time is a very valuable commodity on tour. The formula we use is that every two hours on our Echo Transportation Motorcoaches is weighted as one hour on the floor. The goal is to provide 8 equivalent hours of total rest every night.
Everyone is happy to be on the road. The three weeks of spring training must seem like they will never end and then poof they are gone and the reality of what we have been working towards, touring, becomes real.
We are rehearsing well. The heat is no stranger. In fact they locals tell me that Kermit was 8 to 10 degrees warmer last week. Crossmen are carrying "coolness" with us everywhere we go so far! We are no stranger to 90 degrees.
